Racism is a long time issue which has been existing for more than a century Cases have been taken to the courts in order to bring justice to the society against racism Separate but equal is a legislature that was being put into the constitution in 1792 It disrupted the society due to how itlaw was interpreted by the people Although the American law for equal rights has been written in the constitution since 1792 most people even the authoritative onesie judges never put it in practice The cry for equal justice for minority groups is so extensive especially in the south where the KKKKu Klux Klans are more in existence Some of the legal issues about these outcries are the 1896 Plessy vs Ferguson and the 1954 Brown vs the Board of Education cases The Plessy vs Ferguson case was a very crucial argument which argued the separate but equal issue in the State of Louisiana Even though Plessy a 30-year old shoemaker was mix of seven-eighths white and one-eighths black he was still considered black and punished for entering the wrong car by being jailed When taken the case to the State court Plessy argued that the 14th Amendment has been violated which states that No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States nor shall any State deprive But the Louisiana Statute overturned his case stating that the state has its rights to regulate railway companies that operate only in its state and Plessy was found guilty Plessy was a normal human being who was taken his rights away from him just for the cause of his raceThe Louisiana Statute overlooked Plessys petition regarding justice against segregation which deteriorates the social equality of the society The Courts deprived the liberty of the plaintiffs equal protection of the laws regardless of the 14th Amendment in Constitution Even when taken
